LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX, IOWA By Edward W. Pickard Q Wrsurn Nnupgfxr Um'on Haile Selassie Italy Takes Addis Ababa; the Emperor Flees E MPEROR HAILB SELASSIE of Ethiopia gave up the hopeless flght ngnlnst the Italian Invaders and fled from Addis Ababn with his family. Mussolini's victorious troops soon after marched Into the capital, the first to enter being a picked regiment representing all units of the Italian army, the As- hari, Infantry, artillery, air force, engineers, grenadiers, bersnglierl, Alplnl, cavalry, marines and Fascist mllitln men. Their coming was welcomed by the foreigners who remained In the city, for as soon as the negus left, the natives began to plllnge, plunder and burn. The business center of the town was speedily wrecked and the government buildings were stormed and ravaged, these Including the treasury from which the state's store of gold was stolen, and the armory. The streets were strewn with corpses and the Ethiopians, crazed by liquor, rushed about shooting at random and gathering up their loot to carry It to the hills. Only one foreigner was reported killed. That was Mrs. N. A. Stadln, American wife of an Adventlst missionary, who was struck by a stray bullet. Nearly all other foreigners were gathered In the well fortified British legation, but American Minister Cornelius Van H. Eggert with his wife and the male members of the staff remained In the American compound. They were armed only with rifles and pistols and were under orders from Secretary of State Hull not to risk their lives uselessly; but they were determined to hold the legation and radio station as long as possible. After repulsing many attacks, this plucky group finally evacuated the legation. Halle Selassie went by train to Djibouti, French Somaliland, and was received with all honors at the governor's palace. The British cruiser Enterprise took him to Palestine, and later he may go thence to Europe. At first It was rumored that the French would hold him for a time, but later advices said the French and British governments had decided that he remained a sovereign and must have full liberty of movement. The emperor told his French hosts that his flight was caused by the knowledge that some of his own people were plotting against him and that his loyal .troops were without food and supplies. So ends the military part of Mussolini's African adventure, a success despite the opposition of the League of Nations and the Imposition of economic and financial penalties. The duce announced the victory of his country from the chamber of deputies and there was wild rejoicing throughout Italy. It Is taken for granted Mussolini will set up an Amhurlc state In part of Ethiopia under a puppet emperor; and presumably Italy, France and Great Britain will get together and determine their respective zones of Influence In the ancient empire. The humiliated league can do nothing except lift the existing sanctions, which proved futile in halting the war. British Foreign Minister Eden and his fellows In the government must admit us gracefully as possible their failure to check Mussolini and get what they can for Britain out of the African tragedy. France probably Is not sorry over the outcome, for her opposition to the duce's ambitious scheme always was half-hearted. Vandenberg's Name Is to fie Presented OENATOR ARTHUR H. VAN- 0 DENBERG of Michigan 1ms asked Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald of that state to present his name to the Republican convention in Cleve- Jand for the Presidential nomination, bnt the senator Insists this does not make him an active candidate. "T h e Michigan a t a t e convention generously Instructed the Michigan delegation in Cleveland to present my name," the senator said. "But the delegation Is un pledged—at ray request. It Is free to vote as It pleases. I have not sought a delegation here or elsev ^vhere and I shall not do so. I have not sought the nomination and »hall pot do so. My situation Is not changed lq the slightest." , Friends of Senator Borah In Utah tiried unsuccessfully for a Borah pledged delegation from that state. The Republican state convention In Ogden voted to send an unlnstruct- ed group to Cleveland, following the recommendation of the reaolu tlons committee. The Arkansas delegation also wll be unlnstructed, though the state convention approved an "expression of good will" toward Gov. Alf Lan don of Kansas. Col. Henry Breckenrldge, who offered himself to the Democrats as a Presidential nominee aspirant mere ly so that disaffected members of the party might have some place to go, received about one-seventh of the votes in the Maryland prefer ence primary. The rest, of course, went to Mr. Roosevelt. Colonel Breckenrldge had made no canv palgn. Senator Vandenberg Senator Hastings Will Not Seek Re-election D ANIEL O. HASTINGS, senator from Delaware, chairman of the Republican senatorial campaign committee and outspoken opponent of the New Deal, will not seek reelection when his present term expires. He so announced in a letter to the party-leaders of his state, giving as his reason the necessity to devote himself to his law practice. This may have In- Sen. Hastings fluenced h|g ded . sion, but it Is more than suspected that the real reason was the fact that the du Pont family, all-powerful In Delaware Republican politics, had decided that the senatorial seat should go to Gov. C. Douglas Buck, who is related to the du Fonts by marriage. Senator Hastings has always been ready and eloquent In defense of the flu Fonts against attacks by the New Dealers. Navy Expansion Measure Passed by the House CINCE international naval disar- ^ mament efforts have failed, those who advocate adequate national defense rejoice in the passage by' the house of the bill appropriating approximately ?531,000,000 to build our navy up to treaty strength. Representative Marcantonlo of New York and a few others put up loud opposition, but a record vote was not necessary. The objectors dwelt especially on a clause authorizing the laying of keels for two 35,000- ton battleships after January 1, 1037, should any foreign signatory to the London naval treaty start a battleship replacement program. Two days later they might have read dispatches from London say- Ing rumors had reached there that Japan was considering laying down a 5fi,000-ton battleship armed with 21-Inch guns. Business Men Differ With Mr. Roper T~\ANIEL C. ROPER, secretary of *^ commerce, appeared before the Chamber of Commerce of the United States at Its annual meeting in Washington and warned Its members, most of whom are persistent critics of New Deal policies, that unless private enterprise takes up the slack In employment, business must pay the relief bill out of earnings. "It Is the responsibility of all busl- Seo - Roper ness and Industrial enterprises," said Roper, "and not of one particular segment of the government to Increase its efforts for greater employment. If a substantial measure of increased re-employment does not take place the taxation for relief purposes will come largely from business earnings. There must be re-employment or a longer period of increased taxation." Various members of the chamber replied spiritedly. Roy C. Osgood, vice president of the First National bank of Chicago, predicted that if the administration embarked on a sound fiscal program that would Inspire confidence, business would make rapid strides toward recovery. Fred H. Clausen, president of the Van Brunt Manufacturing company of Horicon, WIs., told the chamber that the rising tide of public spending had been "rolling onto our people for five years," and there was no end In sight. He declared that the re-employment mandates laid down by President Roosevelt, Secretary Roper and others were practically impossible In the light of the Increased burdens heaped on Industry. The American Federation of Labor reported that "little or no progress" had been made In re-employment during the first quarter of this year. The federation estimated 12,184,000 persons were unemployed In March. • Seasonal gains in business and agriculture, returning 559,000 persons to work, were "about normal," the' report said. Huge New Tax Measure Rushed Through House W ITH extraordinary speed which the opposition considered Indecent, the administration's new $803,000,000 revenue bill was pushed through the house. The vote, 267 to 93, was almost strictly along, party lines The roll call showed 82 Republicans and only 11 Democrats voted against the meas- sure, while four Republicans deserted the minority to cast their lot with the _ u .', administration. Sen " Harrl8on The bill was handed to the senate whose finance committee, headed by Pat Harrison, had been studying It In secret Sessions In order to be prepared for the public hearings that opened two days after the house had acted. There had been predictions that this committee would modify the measure radically, but the opposition to It in Democratic ranks seemed to have faded away and Its passage by the senate without material change was deemed probable. , As passed by the house the bill provides: 1. A graduated tax on corporation ncome which, ft Is estimated, will 'orce distribution of $3,300,000,000 more in dividends and yield the gov- Tnment an additional §620.000,000 annually. 2. A "windfall" tax on unpaid or •efunded processing taxes imposed under the Invalidated AAA, which s expected to yield .$100,000,000. 3. Continuation of the capital stocks and excess profits tax for six months to yield §35,000,000. 4. A refund of §35,000,000 to processors who suffered financial losses under the old AAA. lagood Holds New Command One Day, Then Retires M A.7. GEN. JOHNSON HAGOOD, assigned to the command of he Sixth corps area with headquar- :ers at Chicago, held the command only one day, as a matter of form, and then at his own request was re- leved of the assignment and retired rom active service. H« said he vould remain In Chicago several months to do some special work for i mail order house and then would elect a permanent residence and vrite a book telling "how the Unlt- d States can get a very much bet- er national defense at very much ess cost to the taxpayer." Young Farouk Succeeds 0 Egyptian Throne PUAD I, king of Egypt, died of n 1 gangrenous throat infection at its country place near Cairo at the ge of sixty-eight.

Radicals Control French Chamber of Deputies 1 elections In France put *• complete control of the chamber f deputies In the hands of the rev- lutlonary "Popular Front," a coall- ion of Communists, Socialists, Rad- cal Socialists and minor left wing roups. The new chamber does not neet until June, and the confusion s so great that there are fears of haos and financial panic In the In- erlm. Many believe the Popular 'ront will be unable to form a table government to succeed that f Premier Sarraut. The lead must e taken by the Socialists, for they now form the largest group In the hamber with 146 seats. The Radial Socialists, have 115, the Communists 72 and minor left parties 44.

Washington Digest 4 National Topics Interpreted ^ By WILLIAM BRUCKART/ NATIONAL PRESS BLOG WASHINGT&N, D C !>&l. Washington.—Business, as represented by the Chamber of Commerce of the United Start Class states, agarn has Struggle clashed with the New Deal, and again the cannonading by business added nothing. Its attacks apparently bothered the New Deal not at all, for the New Deal has proceeded after the manner of the mastiff trotting along without concern while a poodle barked and snarled. Business made no overtures for compromise with the New Deal and New Deal spokesmen were not hastening to make peace with business leaders. Altogether, there was not the slightest indication given that there will ever be peace between the two elements of economic thought. The one thing that Impressed me about the recent annual meeting here of the chamber of commerce was the solidarity of business In Us opposition to general New Deal principles. That was to be expected but it has not always been the case. In days past, there were many business groups and Individuals who adhered to the New Deal and vainly tried to work out nn understand-. Ing with the administration. At this annual meeting, however, there was not the slightest effort made on the part of business to accomplish any arrangement whereby business and the administration would work together. This can mean only one thing: President Roosevelt is going Into his campaign for re-election without the support of business interests except where, in particular lines, benefit has accrued Incidentally to specific businesses. One would think that such a condition would constitute a threat against the President's re-election. Such appears not to be the case, however, because of the particular type of campaign which Mr. Roosevelt and his political commander In chief, Postmaster General Farley, are making. The President's recent political speeches have made It quite clear that he Is seeking support wholly from the agricultural and labor segments of our voters. His appeals are quite open and frank and they are drawing considerable criticism because It Is held they constitute the Initiation of class struggle In this country. Whatever the reason for the President's course, It remains as a fact that he is very busy cultivating voters who have suffered most In the depression, • * * When I reported above that business came off second best In its . fresh assault on Makes Good the New Deal, I Fight did not mean to imply that It had not madea vigorous fight. It probably gained some ground In getting before the country its side of the story, a phase of our national situation which has not been as fully advertised to the country as have the activities and accomplishments of the New Deal. The story of the losses suffered by business actually Is not a great deal different from that of the Individual, and many businesses are existing on a hand- to-mouth basis just as Is the case with thousands of individuals. Because business, In our mind's eye, at least, is larger than an individual, political demagogues regard It as fair game and for that reason, I am Inclined to believe, business has not had a fair chance on the part of most of us when considering national problems. On the other hand, business has many units within the whole that have not played fair. There are a great many corporations that are guilty of plain oppression, even to the extent of fraud and corruption of business methods. For the crookedness o' this segment, ail business has been blamed by the New Deal. This is not equity. The unhappy part of It all Is that unless all business stands together, good, bad and in-between, It can get nowhere at all in defense of Its legitimate rights. There Is, therefore, a wholly natural and yet quite unfair result emanating from this condition. New Deal planners, In their efforts to catch the crooks, have punished la- gltlmnte business far too much if one is to accept even partially the public statements and the private expressions of the business men who attended the annual meeting of the chamber of commerce. This ought not to be and I think that legitimate business has just ground for complaint on this score. So, as the situation now stands. I believe It can be said In all fairness that neither side In this battle between the New Deal and business comes into court with entirely clean hands. Business has its cancerous sores. The New Deal has Its nitwits and theorists who know nothing about practical economics. The result of tills is plainly seen, and It becomes more and wore apparent that Mr. Roosevelt cannot accomplish his objective of complete recovery until he directs some of his subordinates to put their feet on the ground. Indeed, there are some of the New Deal subordinates who ought to be tossed bodily into the street, just as there are some business men who ought to be thrown Into jail. * * • The chamber of commerce meet- Ing brought forth the Information . that business, as Business a whole, had kept Has Answer hundreds of thousands of workers on Its collective pay rolls during the depression when conditions did not justify their retention. The claim was advanced that business had expended something like twenty billions in wages paid from stored-up reserves. It was further assertei that business was alone responsibl for such gains toward recovery a have been made. New Deal spokesmen, from Pres Ident Roosevelt on down, have con sistently accused business of fall ure to take on workers and help solve the unemployment problem. A the same time. The banking struc ture of the country has been ac cused chiefly by the President of refusal to extend credit to business and business as a whole has been classified by the President as greedy It seems safe to say that as re gards these charges, business doe have an answer, for throughout al history capital has refused to wor unless there was a reasonable prom ise of return. Now, In addition t the lack of that promised return business is and was constantly con fronted with uncertainties on th part of the New Deal. The presen pending tax legislation is typlca The most dangerous provision o that legislation is that which wil prevent business from building up reserves such as those upon whicl it has been drawing during the de pression. • * * With reference to the New Dea policies toward business, a state _ .. ment by the Rura Delicate Electrification ad Question ministration has just come to ray desk. It touches on that very deli cate question of how far the gov ernment can enter Into business In competition with private enterprise without destroying or , driving 6u private Initiative. The complain on the part of private business tha. the government Is continually wedg Ing Its way Into private fields Is wel known but the REA statement puts something of a new slant on the view. The REA statement consists of a letter from REA AdmlnlstratorMor rls Cooke to the State Corporation Commission of Virginia. The Vir ginia commission was urged to eon sider the situation In which the REA and one of Its loans will be placed In event of a certain ruling l.y the Virginia officials. In effect Administrator Cooke asked the Vir ginia commission to rule against prl vate business In order that a $306, 000 loan made by REA to a co-op erative organization In Virginia can be protected. To review the facts briefly, let me explain that a private electric-com pany applied to the Virginia com mission for authority to extend its lines for transmission of energy In to a farming section adjacent to cities served by the electric company It happened that the REA had sent agents Into this same territory am had obtained promises from manj farmers to buy electricity from a co operative concern to be organized and financed by REA. The private company apparently horned In to what Mr. Cooke thought was the territory of REA by right of discovery or some other such reason, am, so he Is now engaged In attempting at least to prevent the private company from entering that field. The point of this circumstance Is that here Is a federal agency, steeped in bureaucracy and with the usual bureaucratic thirst for power, which actually l s attemptin- to drive private Industry out of Its way. It is doing It under the thinly disguised reason of protecting a gov ernment loan. I have heard considerable discussion of this case. Many observers and students of economi'c questions contend that the federal govern ment has absolutely no right to engage In that sort of business. While it may be, and probably can be, said that the electric company was attempting to take the cream of the crop by extending Its lines only to territory adjacent to its headquarters, the fact remains that the normal re-employment which that private company would do will be cut down proportionately by the exten sion of the federal activities Into that area. It may appear that the workers displaced for the private company will be taken on by the federally financed co-operative lines but such Is not the case, it is j us , one more indication of how govern ment. once it enters private busi' ness, continues to expand and to destroy initiative which private en terprise has and which governmen, never has been kuown to have © Westeru New.xuauer l!ni., u ' BRISBANE THIS WEEK One King Dead.

Bowers replied: "Nobody, nobody cares whether I die or not" Hitler apparently has chosen his successor "in case," in the person of Air Minister Goering, now made "assistant dictator," with control of two great German problems of raw materials and foreign exchange.

'Another gold, more Important than those combined, is the go)d of education.
